If we are going to invest successfully in this new, more treacherous environment, we are going to have to recognize that bizarre stock movements have become a staple, if not the hallmark, of this era. Before we even get to the buying and selling of individual stocks in order to create wealth, we have to understand how stocks are impacted by both understandable events and what seem to be random gyrations that baffle and frighten us. We need to fathom these moves because when we become scared and confused investors we become emotional and reckless investors. Ignorance is the opposite of bliss in the stock market.
